Packing leftovers at the table - Is it just me?

Last night, I went out to dinner (Bertucci's) and since I couldn't finish my entree, I told our server that I would like to bring it home. She brought a styrofoam container to our table and picked up my plate and fork, and scraped the food right there into the container for me. It looked like she was scraping food into the trash, and the food then immediately became labeled "garbage" in my head. Totally lost my appetite.
Am I being oversensitive? Have you seen this happen and thought it was okay (or disgusting)?
